Festive and Fun - Letter Perfect!

Card made with Stampin'UP!'s Festive and Fun stamp set
Do you enjoy cutting images?  What do you thinkof this card?  The images are from a set called: Festive and Fun. Among the ladies who attend the Stamp-a-Stack events here at my house in Stoughton, there is an on-going debate on whether they prefer to cut or to color. With this card they both win.

The colors and textures are festive too. I just love Christmas colors and they're so well done on this card. The background texture on the red was done with the new Star Burst Embossing Folder found in the Holiday Mini Catalog.

This was a Trade Card. One of the advantages of being a Demonstrator is the opportunity to participate in card trades. This is true whether you are a Business Demonstrator or a Hobby Demonstrator. A Hobby Demonstrator is essentially a discount buyer.
Read more about the differences here.

I am continually wowed by the top notch quality and amazing creativity of the ladies I trade with. This particular card was made by a fellow demonstrator, Norma Artman who lives in the nearby town of Deerfield. Did you notice the "O" in Jolly. Norma turned it into a shaker window using Stampin'UP!'s new nested Shaker Window Frames and the new Mica Flakes. Check out this stamp set and the shaker windows on page 28 of the new Mini Catalog.  You can see another card made with one of the larger window frames HERE. That window is filled with the Glassy Glitter.

Happy Stamping
